Question about LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Washer / Dryer

Lg wd-3243rhd front load washer and dryer combo "le" error message

I bought a house with the LG 3243 (about 4 years old) already installed, no owner's manual. This morning, after starting a small cotton load on "Auto", I notice the digital display said "le" and the clothes inside were still wet.
I tried to start a "dry" cycle, but it stopped shortly after starting, again giving the "le" message.
I can't see where I can access the hose to try to clear a clog.
Any suggestions.
Thanks

LE error code means the motor sensor has failed.  The motor sensor is located in the back of unit inside the motor.  You will need to order a replacement motor sensor from LG.  You will need a 17 mm and 10 mm socket tools to do this job.

This web site has a copy of manual. I found it by searching in Google for: lg wd-3243rhd manual

The manual gives LE as meaning there is a motor overload, which may well mean a faulty sensor.

Note that the manual warns against putting stuff of the top of the machine because this can cause overheating.

Note also that CoolTech sounds experienced. I just read manuals.

You don't have to get a complete motor. The only thing that is gone most likely is the Hall sensor. Runs about $20. You will have to take off the Rotor and stator and it clips onto the stator. Be careful when putting the rotor back on as the magnets pull it back in and if your not careful you will pinch your fingers.

Lg wd-3245rhd LE error message


This seems to be a fault in the motor wiring harness, check all the connectors to and from the motor, check the male and female connectors. Also check the sensors to the motor which can cause this motor to show up as overload.

I have a similar problem with my LG WD-3245RHD. I had a repairman come out to look at it and he said I needed a new circuit/control board. I have not been able to locate this replacement part to date. RepairClinic.com has one listed, but it is not in stock.

I have an LG WD 3243RHD washing machine/dryer combo and it is displaying LE. Is there anything I can do without calling a repairman?


LE on this machine indicates a motor error. The connector in the lead wire assembly is not connected to the connector of the stator assembly. You need to reconnect or repair the connector. Also, it could mean that the Hall Sensor is defective and you may need to replace the Stator Assembly.

Lp conversion for LG dryer


After removing the three screws which pass through the L bracket into the back of the dryer:
Stand in front of the dryer and (using the palms of your hands) give the top a sharp push back on the dryer top at the left and right side of the top. The top should slide back 1 to 2 inches. Now lift the top off.

If you post again with further questions, make sure to post under the model number you have. (you posted using a combo washer / dryer, and stated you are converting to LP, which combo units are not gas.)

LG 3243 not draining


Take the drain filter out and look inside the drain tube with a flashlight.  Usually, you will find a small sock blocking the drain hose inside.  If you can see it, you can use a coat hanger to pull it out.

Here is the Service Manual

Bonus, it actually completes a wash cycle and does not stick at 6 minutes, drying forever.

Freakin service tech stated it was the Power Control Board, IDIOT!

While I was in there, I cleaned out the heater blower assembly and sensors. They were full of caked on lint and the sensors had debris all over them.

Also cleaned out all the lint and debris around the rubber seal, this will eliminate those annoying mildew oders.

Hope this helps someone, Happy New Year!
